Windows 7: Accessing a NAS drive

23 Nov 2010   #1

Windos 7 Home Premium
Accessing a NAS drive

I have two computers, one an Advent 4211-B netbook and the other an Acer Aspire 5920g laptop, both running Windows 7 Home Premium (completely up to date) and AVG Internet Security.

The two computers are part of a Home network which also includes a Sky Router, Lexmark S605 network printer and a WD 2TB NAS drive.

Everything on the network is visible to all other items on the the network.

I have installed WD Anywhere Backup Pro software on both and the backups are carried out as expected.

If I use the URL http:\\ when on the Advent I access the NAS control panel OK.

If I use the same URL on the Aspire I get the following error:

UNKNOWN 503 Server temporarily overloaded Date: Tue, 23 Nov 2010 12:17:41 GMT Cache-Control: no-cache,no-store Content-Type: text/html; charset=%s Connection: close
503 Server temporarily overloaded
The server cannot process the request due to a high load.

Can anyone shed any light on this problem?
